7:06 am
states sat war with islam. saying instead, the u.s. is at war with those who have perverted islam, as he made those comments the pentagon outlined plans for the largest military operation we have yet seen against isis. this would be an effort to retake the city of mosul in iraq. this is the crowd jewel for isis. this is an operation the pentagon said would involve 20,000 or more iraqi troops going in specifically trained by the united states for this mission. the operation would begin in april or may. and, george it's possible this operation would include some embedded u.s. troops for the purposes of calling in air strikes. that is a decision the president himself would make. >> 2 white house taking incoming in a different way. the former mayor of new york taking on the president saying he doesn't think the president loves america. >> reporter: yeah and giuliani prefaced the comment by saying
7:07 am
it may be a terrible thing to say. the white house response came from eric schultz, who said i agree with him on one thing. it was a horrible thing to say. >> thank you, jon. we'll have more sunday on "this week." all right, george to the latest on the deadly road rage incident in las vegas that left a mother of four dead. and arrest was made thursday after a tense standoff with police. authorities are looking for a second suspect. kendis gibson has the very latest.

7:09 am
just the latest twist in this bizarre and ever-changing case. initially, police say meyers was shot as a result of random road rage while teaching her daughter how the drive. later, authorities revealed she went home after the encounter, rounding up her oldest son who had a gun, and helped them track down the driver. the suspect fold them home and shot her in the driveway. this morning, police say they're still looking for a second suspect. while they believe nowsch pulled the trigger, they're still not sure who was driving the car. this morning, many are wondering what took so long for an arrest? the victim lived and was killed right back there. nowsch lived about a one-minute walk away. he's now facing three felony charges, george? >> can you, kendis. let's get more from ryan smith, our legal analyst. a bizarre story. tough for prosecutors. they have a lot to sort through.
7:10 am
>> that's right. it could be a slam-dunk case for prosecutors. which story do you believe? because in their current account, they're driving around the neighborhood they come upon these folks. these potential suspects. then they leave. in that sense, prosecutors will say they're deescalating. the suspects follow them to the home and open fire. that would point to the suspects being the responsible parties. >> one of the things we look at does nowsch claim he's was firing in self-defense? >> that will be tough to prove. they're saying he followed them home and then opened fire. where is the threat? he would have to claim imminent threat that was deadly and he was trying to fepd thought ing toing to fend that off with equal force. if they knew this guy, knew he was batd news, why not call the police? why not call 911? that will make the case harder for prosecutors. >> meantime another spepect could be on the loose.
